Sam Smith has been expressing his thoughts about Russia and their ‘treatment towards the LGBT community’ – as a result he has said he will never perform there.
Rolling Stone quoted Sam Smith as saying: “I don’t hate Russia, but I just will never go to Russia [because] what they do to gay people there is just disgusting and it makes me very angry.
“I’ve even said, no matter how many billions of pounds you could offer me, I just couldn’t, which makes me sad because I have Russian fans. They contact me on Twitter, it makes me sad.”
